Donald Trump Attends NYC Adele Concert, Cuts in Line — and Crowd Reacts in Predictable Fashion |

Republican presidential candidate and business magnate Donald Trump is apparently just like us — he loves Adele.

The 2016 candidate was spotted by a handful of Twitter users at the British songstress’s concert Tuesday night at Radio City Music Hall in New York. BuzzFeed’s Matt Bellassai tweeted that Trump cut past a line of concert-goers waiting to get into the venue, adding that some attendees cheered the candidate and others booed.

Adele’s song “Skyfall,” from the Bond movies, is apparently on heavy rotation in Trump’s campaign rally playlist, Real Clear Politics reporter Rebecca Berg pointed out.


Adele cries over her own music when it's good; opens up about son and boyfriend - LA Times

Adele totally gets it if you tear up during her emotional ballads, because she's prone to do the same.

The British singer-songwriter, who blasted back onto the scene this month with her powerhouse hit "Hello," opened up to the New York Times about her method, particularly what it takes for her to write a really good song.

"In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me," the singer said. "That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself — it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in ... tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself."

Madonna Breaks Down Crying Onstage as She Honors Paris Attacks Victims and Performs Like a Prayer | E! Online

Madonna could not hold back her tears at her concert in Stockholm, Sweden as she stopped the show to pay tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks and their families.

At least 129 people were killed and more than 350 were wounded in ISIS terrorist shootings and suicide bombings in the French capital on Friday. The 57-year-old Queen of Pop stopped her concert after performing 13 songs and spoke for several minutes about the tragedies and delivered a powerful message about tolerance.

"Actually I don't need my guitar for this 'cause it's been very hard for me to get through this show up to this point and not forget about what happened last night, so I need to take this moment to acknowledge the tragedy, the tragic killings, assassinations and the senseless endings of precious life that occurred last night in Paris," Madonna said, as seen in a YouTube video posted on Saturday by her manager, Guy Oseary.

"It's been really hard, actually to get through the show because in many ways, I feel, I feel  torn. Like, why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones," she said, tearfully. "However, that is exactly what these people want to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us. And we won't let them."

She was met with cheers across the packed Tele 2 Arena.


Bono on Paris attacks: 'This is the first direct hit on music' -

(CNN) U2 were rehearsing at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris Friday night, less than three miles away from the Bataclan concert hall where the Eagles of Death Metal were playing, when they got word of the terrorist attack on the city.

"Our security locked it down pretty quickly and we got our team and our crew out of there safely," Bono told Irish DJ Dave Fanning in a radio interview Saturday. "We came to the back door of the hotel. Everyone congregated and watched the TV like everybody else in disbelief with what was happening. We're all safe."


U2 have been gigging all over Europe for the past two months, leading up to a planned show Saturday night in Paris set for broadcast on HBO.


Adele: 21 named greatest album of all time by Billboard |

AdeleRumor has it Adele’s 21 is the greatest album of all time, at least according to Billboard. The magazine’s Billboard 200 album chart announced the recognition this week based on the work’s chart position.

“Adele’s blockbuster 21 tops the Billboard 200’s all-time albums ranking, fueled not only by the set’s 24 nonconsecutive weeks atop the list (the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a woman), but also its lengthy chart run in the upper reaches of the tally,” according to a post on Billboard.

Coming in second on the Billboard 200 list was the soundtrack to Sound of Music, while Michael Jackson’s Thriller came in third.

CMA Awards 2015: Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Jokes :

They knew it was coming.

Leading up to the CMAs, Blake Shelton predicted he and ex-wife Miranda Lambert would field a joke or two about their divorce.

Turns out, Shelton was right.

"It's cray cray how many couples have broke up this year, from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry and what's his name," Brad Paisley said while opening the show with co-host Carrie Underwood.

Underwood replied, "And of course, we can't ignore the breakup that really rocked our world, the one that's on everyone's minds, two people who we all know and love: Splitsville."

Then the camera cut to Kermit and Miss Piggy, The Muppets characters who split earlier this year.
